Throughout the month of March, we’re taking our researchers on the road to celebrate the research that you have helped fund. Brain Awareness Month is a chance for the Neurological Foundation to connect with its supporters throughout New Zealand and share with them the new and exciting breakthroughs that have been happening in the lab!
We hope you’ll celebrate Brain Awareness Month with us this year to commemorate the past 50 years of research, and to see where the next 50 will take us.
TOPIC OF THE EVENT
Throughout his event, Sir Richard Faull will be taking you through the wonders of the human brain. Find out why he fell in love with the human brain when he was just a third-year medical student and how his career has progressed throughout the years. You’ll learn about current research being conducted at the Centre for Brain Research as well as how the Neurological Foundation Human Brain Bank plays a very important role within research.
Sir Richard Faull will be sharing the discoveries he has made over the years, as well as the unknown wonders the human brain still has to offer.
